The meeting

Daniel’s encounter with Geraldine has a profound effect on him, as he cannot get her off his mind. In desperation, he arranges to meet with her. To his surprised, she agrees. They realize that they are in love, but a love that cannot be fulfilled as she is married to John Winter.

Both are frustrated by their situation; Daniel because he must live without her; she because her conscience and faith will not allow any other course.

This meeting only proves that they cannot change their situation although they love one and other. Any other course of action would stigmatized them and ostracize them. That is the dilemma in which they find themselves.

Have they acted foolishly or sensibly? What can they do now? What will they do?
